I’m a cop. If you don’t want to get hurt, don’t challenge me. Even though it might sound harsh and impolitic, here is the bottom line: if you don’t want to get shot, tased, pepper-sprayed, struck with a baton or thrown to the ground, just do what I tell you. Don’t argue with me, don’t call me names, don’t tell me that I can’t stop you, don’t say I’m a racist pig, don’t threaten that you’ll sue me and take away my badge. Don’t scream at me that you pay my salary, and don’t even think of aggressively walking towards me.
Sunil Dutta, a 17-year veteran of the Los Angeles Police Department responds to the police actions happening in Ferguson.
Pretty scary that he doesn’t even recognize that this type of police mentality is a problem.
"Just do what I tell you."
He literally uses threats of death to stop people from exercising their right to remain silent and their right to refuse searches. Why is he still on the police force and not in jail? If there are good cops, why aren’t any of them arresting him for making death threats?
A police officer labels all police officers as violent terrorists who would be sent into a murderous rampage if someone doesn’t obey them, even though disobeying an officer includes exercising your constitutional right to remain silent or refuse a search.
If you hate when people assume that all police officers are evil, stop normalizing the actions of those who are evil.
